Did you check all options one by one and see which one actually helps? Some might conflict with your theme and some might improve the speed drastically.
Hi itsnt work with my website , php version is 8.1 and give my “There has been a critical error on this website. Please check your site admin email inbox for instructions.
Learn more about troubleshooting WordPress.”
Okay. What email did you get?
If you did not, can you enable debug mode and see what the error is?https://wordpress.org/support/article/debugging-in-wordpress/
still give me :”There has been a critical error on this website. Please check your site admin email inbox for instructions.
Learn more about troubleshooting WordPress.”
Can you check the error logs?
An error of type E_ERROR was caused in line 2118 of the file /home2/wowelega/public_html/wp-content/themes/machic/includes/class-tgm-plugin-activation.php. Error message: Cannot redeclare tgmpa() (previously declared in /home2/wowelega/public_html/wp-content/plugins/lighthouse/classes/class-tgm-plugin-activation.php:2126)
I see. You already have the TGMPA library. I will fix it this afternoon and release a fixed version.
I have released a fixed version – 3.8.3 – and there should now be any issues now. You should also make sure you are using the latest version of the Machic theme.
hi where is the new version? 3.8.3
Updated versions of your purchased plugins are in your Downloads section.
Hi! Since I purchased it I’ve been testing it and still can’t figure out if this plugin is helping my site or not.
You can enable SpeedFactor and start tracking your metrics, and then enable your desired Lighthouse options and see if something changes.
Hi! A few questions before buying: 1. Is the plugin GDPR compliant? 2.Does it work with WP-Optimize cache plugin?
Hi, the plugin doesn’t store any data, so GDPR is irrelevant here.
Honestly, I haven’t tested it with WP Optimize, but if you don’t duplicate the functionality (for example have minification enabled in both of them), then it should work.
Also, the SpeedFactor functionality (speed tracking) will work 100%.
You are welcome! Let me know how it works for you.
Hi! I disabled WP Optimize and installed Lighthouse. I haven’t seen any improvements to the site.
Did you try the Safe or Advanced Presets? Note that everything is disabled by default.
Enabling some of the Lighthouse’s options, will cut your JS/CSS resources in half, if not more. If you test it with GTMetrix, for example, before and after enabling those options, you’ll see the difference.
Also, adding whatever external scripts you are using (Bunny Fonts, Google Fonts, Google Tag Manager, Google Analytics and so on) to the Speed Settings tab → Custom Resource Hints (DNS Prefetch) field, you will see a faster connection speed and a better TTFB.
Greetings can I ask you for a refund installed the plugin the message to install Git updater appeared once FATAL ERROR is activated, all plugin folders deleted
Greetings! This is not possible, and it doesn’t sound like a Lighthouse error. How did all your plugins get deleted?
pas votre plugin mais git updater qui me semble avoir compris que vous l’utilisiez pour mettre à jour votre plugin. erreur fatale juste activée et tous les dossiers de tous les plugins supprimés
Hello. I have a presale question. There seems no lazy load image feature, or is there? Kind regards
No, lazy loading is native in all modern browsers.
Also, WordPress automatically adds a
loading="lazy" parameter to all images.
Got it! Thank you so much for your prompt reply. I think i will give it a try and purchase your plugin, Have a good day!
Have a good day yourself!
Installed Lighthouse and the next day found that the CPU on the hosting has increased. Disabled the plugin: the next day the CPU load is down.
Is there any way you can pinpoint the issue? As in, enable options one by one until you find the issue? Also, I don’t know your hosting specifications.
Hello, thank you for the great initiative to develop a lighthouse plugin for WP.
I have purchased the plugin but somehow I can’t find a page where I can send my support ticket.
I have a question if can visualize the Speed Metrics per page? no worries if not I am an expert WP developer and I have the technical capability to extend the plugin to reach my needs.
Hi, you are welcome!
You can not visualize speed metrics per page, it’s per domain only, as that is where issues occur. If your domain and homepage are fast enough, everything will be fast.
not really, I target the 100s on every page, but no worries I can handle modifying your plugin.
I am an expert WP Developer certified by many community members of WP, on technical perspective I can read & customize different code style.
If you would like I can share the improvements after having something presentable
Sure, why not, I’d like to see your implementation.
Pre Purchase Info: This plugin is compatible with w3 total cache? Thanks
Yes, it is. Just make sure you don’t enable minification on both plugins. Pick one of them.
Hi. Will it help on buddyboss platform? Using litespeed enterprise already. What can safely enable to be sure everything still works ?
It will help with the general WordPress settings, and BuddyPress is built on WordPress, so yeah.
You can enable minification, header and RSS cleanup, mediaelement.js dequeuing, XML-RPC, theme features that you don’t need, such as srcset, post formats.
Try and see what works best for you.
When I install and activate your plugin it’s telling me that my theme requires git updater plugin. What is that?
Git Updater is a free plugin that helps with automatic plugin updates.
Because you can’t update Lighthouse automatically from CodeCanyon and because it’s always a hassle to download the plugin from here and reupload it on your website constantly, Git Updater does this seamlessly.https://git-updater.com/
Ok… But it’s telling me that my theme requires this plugin and I cannot shut this error down. Nothing about your plugin. And even if you’re right, I don’t want extra plugins on my site. Every other plugin has auto updates if license code is inserted, but apparently you do not – that says there might be some quality issues. I am repeating – this error tell me that my theme requires this plugin, nothing about your plugin. And I will definitely not install extra plugins even if I cannot shut this error down. This is not normal
This is a helper plugin. Lots of commercial plugins use it. You don’t need the license code and all updates are automatic and lifetime. It’s not an error and, yes, Lighthouse requires it in order to stay up to date.
It is perfectly normal and there is nothing to worry. I posted the link above in case you want to read more.
Read what I wrote again. Let me think what I should do
Install Git Updater and get free updates or don’t install it and do it manually from CodeCanyon.
Lots of commercial plugins…. Lots of commercial stuff doesn’t work and never will work on this planet, but sentences are being spread and money is being taken. Lots of people would steal everything if they could and leave you alone bleeding. I do not use a single plugin that requires 3rd party plugin to function. Especially with wrong errors. I am tired of all of bullshit on the planet
I think you might have other problems, bigger than my Lighthouse plugin
yes I do. I also don’t feel like testing every single feature of my site whether it’s working or not after enabling features of your plugin. But no other way to do it, ehh
This is supposed to be a developer plugin, and you should know what you are doing.
That being said, there are 2 presets in the plugin, basic and advanced. Try the basic one first and see how it goes.
Will this plugin work well with Page Builders like Elementor? And is there a way I can get a trial version?
This plugin will work with Elementor, but it won’t help much, as Elementor is really bad when it comes to optimization.
There is no trial version feature on CodeCanyon.
Hi Butterflymedia, Thank you for the kind share – I have shared this link last week on a SAAS LTD group and there was some good feedback. When will 3.6 update be released on Codecanyon? I am interested in benchmarking against ‘WP Rocket’ and ‘ToolKit For Elementor’ If you ever decide to offer LTD please let me know. Thank you, - Kevin
Hi Kevin, version 3.6 has already been released.
Also, note that WP Rocket and Lighthouse don’t have the exact same functions. A benchmark might be interesting, though.
Is it safe to use both your plugin and wp-rocket at the same time?
Yes, just make sure not to enable the same options on both of them. You can use Lighthouse to measure your website pagespeed and also track the Core Web Vitals.
Its my pleasurer that I can test your plugin just for free
Would you please tell me what is the different between this plugin and Litespeed or WP-Rocket or w3total cache?
And please tell me when you release the first version ?
See the options inside Lighthouse. My plugin doesn’t have caching, like WP Rocket or W3TC.
Lighthouse minifies the HTML, removes lots of useless/bloated/unneeded WordPress features and also tracks and stores your website’s pagespeed.
The first version was released a long time ago, a few years at least.
Much appreciated Cheers
Hi I am wanting to purchase this plugin but I am worried it might break my site. Does it really help optimize your site to make it load faster.
It won’t break your website. It can really improve the speed of your website with at least 10% points in Google PageSpeed Insights.
Does it work with the current version of Wordpress
Yes, it does.
Does it work with wp rocket I did read a comment about that
It does, yes, but there’s no point in having 2 performance plugins installed.
is it php 8 compatible?
Yes, latest version of PHP 8 and latest version of WordPress.
- Question: do I need a cashe plug in like WP Super Cache or is with the above setting such plug in unnecessary ?
- Problem: I can’t access to edit post, I get a blank screen, when the lighthouse is off than I can edit the post. Do you have a solution for this ?
Regarding the white screen, it might be one of the settings, try to disable them and only enable the recommended ones or try to enable them one by one and see which one causes the issue.
Regarding the caching plugin, this is optional. .htaccess might give you better performance, but a plugin like WP Super Cache will cache the pages as HTML giving you less server load. I use WP Super Cache along the .htaccess rules and I am happy.
I don’t recommend using plugins to concatenate/minify your scripts, such as Autoptimize.
Is your plugin compatible with wp-rocket? And will your plugin help improve site performance along with wp-rocket?
They do similar things, so some options might trigger the same behaviour. There are no known conflicts, but I would advise using either one or the other, definitely not both.
Will this be updated anytime soon? I feel like this plugin would need to be updated all the time for it to stay up to date with all the crap GTMetrix has changed (and Google). Is this 100% ready for prime time?
An update is coming tomorrow, and it needs to stay up to date with WordPress and the block editor, not Google and GTmetrix.
The update will clarify some of the linked SpeedFactor details and it will integrate some Gutenberg options.
